In part two of “United in Grief, Divided on Solutions,” we hear how the Lewiston, Maine mass shooting inspired a victim’s father to push for change.

Host Tim Boyum also takes you inside the passionate gun debate playing out in Maine this winter and spring after the October incident. Tim also talks with Maine’s top gun rights group, Maine’s former attorney general, a gun collector and a state lawmaker.

This story takes place in Maine but it will remind you of conversations happening in diners, barber shops and kitchen tables across America.
